Hong Im’s research interests are primarily fundamental and practical aspects of combustion and power generation devices using high-fidelity computational modeling. Recent research topics include ignition/extinction, unsteady flame phenomena, DNS/LES of turbulent reacting flows, nonpremixed edge-flame dynamics, modeling of homogeneous charge compression ignition engines, modelling of sooting flames, and micro-scale power generation.
